Double degrees

The University of Münster offers double degrees in many subjects. This gives students the opportunity to gain their degrees at Münster and, simultaneously, at a partner university abroad. Students study at both locations and in both languages. An adequate knowledge of the other language is, of course, a requirement.

Transnational education programmes

Transnational education (TNE) programmes comprise all types of university education in which students complete at least part of their degree course – or, if they choose, the entire course – at a foreign university. TNE programmes are used by governments, as well as by universities, as an instrument for exporting or importing education.
